Salvation Army of The Black Hills Working to Assist Displaced Apartment Residents In Wake of Spearfish Flooding

Spearfish, South Dakota—Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) teams from the Black Hills are prepared to begin feeding residents of three Spearfish-area apartment buildings who were displaced after flash flooding occurred there over the weekend. 

Local Salvation Army personnel have been working alongside Red Cross representatives, who are set to open a shelter for the displaced residents today at noon.  Plans call for Salvation Army feeding efforts to begin at the shelter tomorrow—via a mix of meals being prepared in-house along with dozens of boxed lunches being prepared in partnership with a local restaurant. 

EDS teams are prepared to continue the feeding operation as long as needed.
